Free-flowing beer and wild animals isn’t a combo I usually condone (just try to run from a bear when you can hardly walk straight). But for Brew at the Zoo, I’m willing to take the risk. At this annual fundraiser, 25 Colorado breweries (including Oskar Blues, New Belgium, Odell) pour their handcrafted beers, while Denver’s bar-food masters (Wazee Supper Club, Cherry Cricket, Goosetown Tavern) dish up the eats. Friday, 6:30-10 p.m. $65. Denver Zoo, 2300 Steele St., 303-376-4800
